Artisan News - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

2014 Recording

"I'm really excited. We're going in the studio February 1st. Got some new ideas. We've been - I saw Joe, Vivian and Rick on Rick's birthday out here on November 1st and we were discussing, we were all excited and buzzy about new material. I can't even remember the last time we were like that. You know about stuff cause it's been a long time since we've had new recordings out. So it's like a brand new band you have all these ideas and we're just gonna get together and bash it out it's great."

Vivian's Health

"He's great. He's in remission. The doctor gave him the OK. So again that was a life changing experience for Viv in a positive way. I think you know it's made him - it's really changed some things in his life in a good way."
